Anyone have the letter from Suzuki in relation to the new recall?

Something to do with the brake master cylinder pistons corroding.

I have the letter at home so will update the affected VIN numbers hopefully tonight.:fact

Re: Suzuki recall

You win a thread delete


First today, third in the last 24 hours. On request from admin, MC threads get deleted as it is stickied and a search will result brings it up so multiple threads on it is not needed and is wasted bandwidth.

Woohoo. Its a shame my thread has no content. But if you follow Sam's link it has everything. My letter was dated 6th November so obviously my safety isnt as important as all the others that got one in October. ;) Lucky I change my fluid once a year.

And for anyone using ASV levers:

ASV Inventions said:
ATTENTION ALL SUZUKI GSXR OWNERS-

Technical Bulletin:

ASV Brake Levers on Recently Recalled Suzuki GSX-R Motorcycles Must Be Re-Installed on Updated Master Cylinders Using ASV's Original Brake Plunger Rod

Recently recalled 2004 to 2009 Suzuki GSX-R600, GSX-R750 and GSX-R1000 motorcycles fitted with ASV Inventions brake levers before the recall can potentially have issues if the original ASV brake plunger rod on the recalled brake master cylinder is not reinstalled on the replacement.

Furthermore, the plunger rod on Suzuki's recall-mandated brake master cylinder must not be used with any ASV lever.

ASV recommends that GSX-R owners with ASV brake levers re-mounted on upgraded master cylinders return to the dealer that installed them to ensure that the ASV lever's original plunger rod was used.

Installation of ASV brake levers on the new master cylinders must be performed according to ASV's installation instructions, which can be found at ASVinventions.com.

If the original ASV plunger rod wasn't used and the dealer no longer has the ASV-supplied part, a replacement will be sent free of charge.

To receive this part or get more information regarding the recall exchange and installation of an ASV brake lever, please contact ASV Inventions at 714-861-1400.
